2.Girlfriends - priceless!
3.Japanese food.
4.Scented candles.
5.and teddy bears!!!

Meanwhile, what were you doing in Russia??? and what was wrong with the Japanese food in Holland?

Marin said...

Hi april,

yes, I also thought it was interesting that you also like candles and Japanese food and Girlfriends( didn't know the bit about you being a lawyer though, interesting)

I did a part of Uni in Russia.

Japanese food in Holland.... both times, I had like 7 course meals which were not tasty and cost a fortune. And the sushi some of the worst I've ever had. I actually had food poisoning after the second occasion. It might have just been bad luck, but I'm not trying a third time!!!!!

Hi Marin, happy new year. Thanks for the tagging, but Desola got there first.

Wishing you all the best 2007 has to offer.

Marin said...

Chxta,

Happy new year to you as well. We should be expecting distinctions from those your exams abi?

I think almost everybody has been tagged at least once by someone else. Read your 4s, interesting.

Have a great weekend.
